Pearls are organic gemstones created by fresh and saltwater mollusks and are the only gemstone made by a living creature. Pearls form when mollusks secrete a substance called nacre around microscopic irritants that have invaded their shell.

Natural and cultured pearls form the same way, with cultured pearls forming around human implanted irritants.

Pearls are timeless and are beloved by women across ages and cultures. Vice President Kamala Harris is known for wearing pearls at important life events (such as being sworn in as Vice President).

Pearl Jewelry and Care

Compared to other gemstones, pearls are relatively soft and measure at just a 2.5 - 3 on the Mohs hardness scale. Because pearls can be easily scratched, they require special care to keep them from being damaged. Store pearls away from other jewelry to prevent scratching, and apply any perfume or cosmetics before your pearl jewelry. 

Pearl Meaning and Symbolism

Over the centuries, the origin of pearls has fascinated people. The ancient middle-eastern belief was that pearls were teardrops from heaven and ancient Chinese believed that pearls came from the brain of a dragon.

Pearls traditionally symbolize purity and loyalty in the wearer. Because of this unique symbolism, pearls are often worn on a wedding day or given as a wedding gift.

The way pearls develop, with layers being added slowly over time, has also given pearls the unique symbolism of wisdom gained through experience.

Moonstone Jewelry and Care

Moonstone measures a 6.5 on the Mohs Hardness scale, which makes it somewhat resistant to scratches, but it is relatively low on toughness and can crack when exposed to high heat or impacts. Because of this, extra care will need to be taken with a moonstone ring or bracelet.

Moonstone Symbolism and Meaning

Native Americans believed that moonstone would appear every 21 years when the sun and the moon were in the correct position. This is where the term “once in a blue moon” comes from.

The symbolism of moonstone closely follows the symbolism of the moon, and is thought to signify love, fertility, feminine energy, relaxation, and balance.
